    I made up so many critics opinions for that exam haha, hopefully they don't check whether those people are real or not!
    I hope so too! I remembered the gist of what they said... :lol: For my mock I used about 10 quotes all from the same guy and my teacher didn't notice so maybe there is hope

    Aha yeah, the city is really very cute, and not tooo far away from London also. Oh dear, I'm getting excited about going there again, when I should be maintaining defensive pessimistic stance. XD
    Thank you! You too! Do you reckon you will attempt to go on UCAS track before collecting your results? I'm not sure if it is a wise idea or not.
    yea quite close, how long does it take by car? I remember it being around an hour and a half or so
    ahah well im sure you'll be pleasantly surprised
    yea definitely, my school don't open till 10ish so I wont be able to resist for 2 hours also I don't care what grades I end up with (within reason) as long as I get into uni/my firm

    I know! Well Bristol calls their course Experimental Psychology too, but still. New College (it's so beautiful :eek:). You - not that I know anything about Cambridge? How are you feeling about results?
    Oh yes, I forgot that and I should know, I put Bristol as my insurance choice. XD
    I can't say I know much about Oxford colleges either but I have heard of New College at least. Aw I'm glad it's so beautiful. It's amusing how they tell us not to base our college decisions on aesthetics when in fact most people do, well I certainly did. And Magdalene college for me.
    Oh God. I feel terrified about results. They asked me to attain A*A*A and I'm not sure I'll get even one A* so yes, without using expletives, I am defecating myself. How about you?

    To work out 90 UMS.

    A - B = X
    A + X = 90 UMS

    I think 100 UMS = 2(A - B) + A

    I took maths, psychology and English literature (psychology is AQA)

    How'd you think C4 went? and did you do M2?

    Sorry for the questions, i'm just excited to discuss exams with someone else who uses the WJEC exam board

    I feel calm almost relaxed now, my biggest fear M1 has turned into one my biggest strengths, the extra ums floating around the various boundaries for which I have gained has now instilled confidence to the max. Now economics and history boundaries be nice and then I am literally overjoyed

    C4, FP2, FP3, M5 - I think 75/75 so full UMS

    S4 - I think 73-75 / 75, so hopefully 97 or upwards based on the boundaries.

    S3 - I think I counted 70/75, and 68/75 will be the A* boundary, so I think 93ish UMS, which I'm happy with.

    M4 - I counted 69/75, maybe 68. From the boundaries (59 for an A, 52 for a B) this means 66 is an A* (with 73 as full UMS), so I am looking at 93ish UMS again, which I'd be happy with. Assuming this M4 is correctly predicted and the first 4 are all 100, I'll beat the schools current UMS record...

    Well done! :congrats:
